problem with my philips sdvd8820 ad20 drive on pa1510

My sdvd8820 is recognized as an empty drive. It can't read any disk. It can read only bootable disks. I can install windows from a windows disk but that's all! What can i do? I've updated the driver but it didn't solve the problem.

Did you make a clean install. When it boots from CD, the drive should be almost fine.

As it reads bootable CDs, then it should read also audio CDs. As the DiscAtOnce is most easy to read. Anyway, it looks that the drive is to its end of life.
